    Question Best Bank for Net Banking and Fund Transfer

    I have a Canara Bank Savings Account for regular use and salary. Liked it because of the number of ATMs everywhere and instant SMS alerts for money credited into account, money debited from account (both via ATM and Debit Card).

    Problem is they are looting people for online transactions @ Rs. 10/transaction (makes no sense paying Rs. 10 extra for a 6 rupees SMS pack recharge to my mobile phone). And I intend to do a LOT of netbanking.

    Hence I want a second account that I can safely use for net banking, credit cards, paying via debit cards, etc. It should have no surcharge for netbanking, no surcharge for fund transfer to another account, should be easy to transfer funds INTO it (by cash, net transfer and cheque) without surcharges and I don't care about how much minimum balance they ask us to maintain. If there are enough freebies and comforts for 10k or even 25k minimum balance, I'm up for it.

    Features I need:

    • No Surcharge for Net Banking
    • No Surcharge for Debit Card
    • No Surcharge for ATM Card
    • No Surcharge for Fund Transfer
    • Secure (VERY SECURE) payment gateway supported widely


    Please suggest some good options!

    If some of you already have canara bank accounts, its nice if you suggest options that can act as compliment to the canara bank account (like for example features already present in CB needn't be present here).

    Charges are always there.

    I use Axis Bank. All fees are mentioned here: Axis Bank

    No surcharge for net banking except a one time fee during opening of account.

    Login and transaction net-banking passwords are different.

    Rs. 5 per outward NEFT transaction. Inward is zero. 5 free ATM transactions per month, it says. Dunno what happens afterwards.

    Dunno about any particular Debit Card charges. Should be there though. I think Rs. 100 if I use my Debit Card ONLINE in that particular month. Otherwise not. Will check and tell you next week.

    Verified by Visa password for Visa debit/credit cards. 3D Securecode (again a password; dunno why called 3D) for Mastercard debit/credit cards. This is present in every Indian bank (RBI has made everyone to comply with this) and used at every desi online website.

    My bank also gives me the ability to create one time use disposable/virtual credit card. (VCC)

    NetSecure enabled. A passkey is sent via SMS to mobile if you do something in net banking website. Example, create VCC.

    Cash deposit is free if my account is in the same branch. If different branch, Rs. 15~ or so. True for every bank.

    What does that mean? Especially the last part. There's no charge like that. And there's only annual debit card maintenance charge, 50/- (can confirm about SBI, can't say about rest).

    20 rs per transaction (including balance inquiry).

    Free in IDBI (they told it, not tried though).

    In HDFC, if you deposit personally (Account holder), then no charges.

    In UBI, no charges except for some branches (99% don't charge, at least here).


    @MHG, I use Union bank extensively (student account), SBI and IDBI. UBI is pretty easy to operate but lacks features like password confirmation via phone for every transaction.

    Cash deposit is free. Typo. Cheque I meant there, if on a different branch.

    I have an account in IDBI bank and I am very much satisfied with their services. As per RBI guidelines, NEFT outgoing transaction charges are 5/- below 1,00,000/- transaction.
    No charges for any online transaction. Three tier security for Online transactions like third party transfer or at merchant gateway.

    As I mentioned earlier, thats RBI guideline. Bank has nothing to do with it. Bank can let off those charges at its own expense and I don't think if any bank has done that.

    Rest of things about Allahabad Bank, I totally agree with you. One of the worst service provider.

    I would suggest you to go for IDBI Bank.

    Well, THE most important feature is free netbanking. Any suggestions for that ? I don't want to pay Rs. 10/- surcharge.

    I found ICICI Branchfree Banking nice but they don't provide debit card, when 60% of my purchases is through debit card (hotels, petrol, provisions, etc).

    well, I've been using SBI for over three years and have used their mobile banking for paying bills, transferring money to accounts of other banks in other states, mobile recharge every now and ten, frequent ATM usage, and swipe in at some stores.

    extra charges I've faced is only when going over the limit of max 5 transactions from a non-native bank atm, for which cash withdrawals cost +20 and ministatement/balance +8rs

    They have a feature rich netbanking solution and even vcc service under "sbicard", I've yet to gain a credit card so is not that familiar with CC. Rest, it's very satisfying

    For a bank with lots of ATMs I don't mindthe max 5 transactions from non-native ATM limit.

    What about Netbanking or mobile banking surcharges ? Do they loot people for each online payment or each online fund transfer ?

    I use their mobile banking app almost daily, recharges and funds transfers. I've been charged nothing till now, for anything. Although I found out that my account can't recharge to tata docomo, I've done recharges as low as 10 and max 600, no charges for that either.

    There will be very very few "offers" and "attractive discounts" for the card though. They are now issuing Visa supported cards too, but mine's Maestro, the old

    SBI's service has significantly improved in near time. When I compare its service at bhopal from my native place or any small town, I find it at par with private banks. Private banks have very less customers than SBI, so they're supposed to be a bit fast. Still, with ATMs at almost every 1-2 km, branches every here and there, you can't go wrong.

    @MHG- I have done online shopping/transfers/recharges worth more than a Lakhs, and there isn't any charge other than for fund transfers & IRCTC booking.

    You can check with standard chartered bank also.

    I have a salary a/c with them for more than 2.5 years now. And I am pretty satisfied with the service they provide.

    Now lets go through the checklist:

    No Surcharge for Net Banking: No

    No Surcharge for Debit Card: For me it was first year free and afterwards annually rs. 799 - platinum debit card. But for salary a/c holders, waived off.

    No Surcharge for ATM Card: NO

    No Surcharge for Fund Transfer: NO

    Secure (VERY SECURE) payment gateway supported widely: I should say secure. And yes, supported widely.

    What are the features available online ?

    Do they have online passbook feature where I can see every transaction right from date of creation of account ?

    Although I found out that my account can't recharge to tata docomo, I've done recharges as low as 10 and max 600, no charges for that either.
    Wait a sec, I have a DOCOMO SIM. What do you mean cannot recharge DOCOMO ?

    There will be very very few "offers" and "attractive discounts" for the card though.
    I don't care about "offers" or "attractive discounts" and the like.

    They are now issuing Visa supported cards too, but mine's Maestro, the old
    Visa support is welcome All new cards are Visa ??

    I still prefer Maestro. You might want to keep in mind that all these new VISA / MasterCard Debit Cards have Rs. 500/- as Min. Withdraw for ATM.

    This thing is really stopping to me to get one of these.

    Wrong. Depends on bank policy.

    Not the back-end. Visa/MasterCard/Maestro.
